To remove patches from a downloaded MIDI file...

1. Switch to Piano Roll Mode.

2. Make sure that #2 (View/Edit) is set to "Program and #1 (Channels) is set to "ALL." These are shown on the upper image below. If a patch is present in the file, it will appear in the region labelled #3.

3. As shown on the lower image (#1), hover the mouse over the patch name.

4. Right-click.

5. Select "Select all graphic events" from the pop-up menu.

6. Select "Delete selected events."

Now save the BIAB with a slightly varied name. Doing this will allow you to reload the original file should you need to.

Regards,
Noel

I am not a big user of MIDI files from the internet, but in the past I have used the event editor to cleanup unwanted "stuff"

First I opened the file using <Open Special>, then using the Notation mode, I used the <Event Editor> (#)

All event types are shown, but the filter can be used to select the specific event type you are looking for.

Does this work for you?

Hi Dave,

That works too.

Until you mentioned it, I've never accessed this editor via the #-button in Notation Mode. I've always gone through the "Melody | Edit Melody Track | Step Edit Melody". (It's definitely much easier to use the #-button in Notation mode.)

Regards,
Noel

#-button?

I do it like you, Noel, using the Step Edit function. I’ll have to look at this.

I also use it to edit note lyrics. As they are a midi event loosely attached to a note event, it's easy to delete then, or adjust their placement. You can move them away from their notes to reduce space between words or delete them if they are no longer associated with the note.
Very versatile.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
